    Yeah, those. While not as sock-sleek as Guidi or some Augustas/VA, I wouldn't say they are like Trickers. More like m.a+. My feet don't work with the sleeker boots/shoes, sadly. The rubber toe is reverse horse and is awesome.

    I did not mention the leather thickness of the Augustas, just that they appear much heavier than they actually are, for whatever reason.

    I like my Marsells, but a lot of their models are really bulbous or otherwise awkward.

    ^^ calling Eck. 187 - there are a few different types of Carpes out there. which one are you interested in? most Carpes run small due to a low instep. however, i'll leave it to Eck to tell you.

    Those are TTS with low instep but plenty of room in the toebox.

    haha yeah, didn't want to blow the spot up but they're pretty nice. debating hard on them. worst part is, because it was just christmas I'm debating. If I found them at any other time, I'd instakop, but because I blew shitloads (gf found out what marc jacobs purses were like...and then you gotta kop the wallet too. oh and she likes these Tom Ford sunglasses) of cash for Christmas it's a debate :(

    no, no- they are not mine- just pics. I'm not really a derby guy but if ever decide to kop a pair I'd search for a S45M model
